~Sir LANCElot (from “Camelot”)
LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson often warns of this temptation
See that ye bridle all your passions
1) How do these simple and profound truths relate to you?
2) How can you make sure that you stay in control of your passions so that you can reach your dreams?
to get off the computer for a little bit! Go for a walk, go do a load of laundry, go volunteer at a nursing home, go call your sister, go read your scriptures, go plan your week. And the list goes on, and on.
Seriously folks, we are TOO ONLINE these days! I very much appreciate that you read my blog, but the OUTERnet can be even better than the INTERnet.
I love this song of Mr. Paisley‘s.
It is a PERFECT satire of this social problem
(although there is the teensiest bit of mild lyrical innuendo)
And Elder David A Bednar of the LDS Church warns of this ubiquitous problem
of assuming fake identities on the internet.
CLICK HERE for that talk (and my sweet thoughts on it) that is insanely awesome…
But back to Ms. Wilkinson’s main point (bookending!)
I love you all (platonically and literally),
but right now I think it would be oh! so wise
to go attend to the matters of real life, know what I mean?
So now skedaddle! GO DO SOMETHING!
But I’ll see ya back here eventually, right?
And now I’m about to say something that
I often wish I could
shout fiddle from the rooftops.
Are you listening?
Okay, here I go:
“I DON’T ANSWER TO ANYBODY,
AND IT’S A LOVELY, LOVELY FEELING!”
There are of course limits to this philosophy, because I do represent Christ,
I believe that women can be sexy,
but also ought to maintain class and (line of) propriety,
and also I am a role model.
But still “I do what I want!”
Katherine, get back to John Mayer…
Read more here about the concert that LITERALLY(!) changed my life…
(more to come on Johnny’s brilliant monologue/idea)
And now Lightn’ing strikes for that thunderbolt of blasphemy
for comparing myself to one of the greatest guitarists/poets of all time…
But allow me to quote from him once again:
“I LOOK GOOD CUZ I FEEL GOOD!”
4 John Mayer lyrics/links/quotations in one post. Excellent job, sweet self…
Oh, yah, not only do KW and JM share fashion blunders, we also share writing blunders. Check it out here.
PS. Even if your outfits are occasionally a little whacky, you can still be as cool as me.
“It’s true. It’s true. I choose you! (says Sara Bareilles).
To have an awesome day!
Go fall in love.
Go change the world.
Go help an old lady move.
Go help her carry her groceries.
Go clean your car, (that’s what I need to do).
I need to go do my hair, and a few other things…
I. Choose. You.
when it comes to this blog, anything does NOT go. The LDS writer Joanna Brooks has made me think about this and it’s implications regarding that golden line of propriety. She has a policy of “Anything Goes” when it comes to comments on her blog posts, but I have firmly chosen required approval for mine. But let’s get away from talking comments because I don’t really have a ton (yet) anyways 🙂 I will not feature any experience/person/picture/video on this blog. Again, I run the risk of coming across as self-righteous, but that’s alright because I like running AND I like risks. And I also know that while I’m not perfect, I do my very best to not judge others while still holding true to my own convictions. So while I respect Joanna as a human, Mormon, AND woman (just like me!), I differ from her in this regard, and in many others as well.
But there are a LOT of things I do wish to feature on my blog. And many, many good things already in the works. Stay tuned!
*had to modify the spelling, but only ever so slightly
*ain’t too old for matching outfits for long distance races
*in pain when this pic was taken (but still smiling cuz I’m with my SISTA!)
Core Beliefs: you know 🙂
I want THIS T-SHIRT:
(chemical equation of Chocolate)
(from “The Big Bang Theory“) watch here: (TOTALLY CLEAN AND FUNNY CLIP, Sam):
I HAD these t-shirts, but Tori Blonquist Powell borrowed them and never gave them back. It’s alright, girl. Ain’t holding a grudge. Let bygones be bygones. You’ve done so much for me that stupid t-shirts don’t matter…Still, I can’t help but reminisce…
(they said “I can’t, I’m Mormon,” but Eliza and I thought our Mormonism empowered us instead of limited us, so we modified a little)….
A whole blog post devoted to shirts, you might ask? Um, would you rather have me walking around like this? 🙂
